So I noticed on the Witcher 2 community page that CDPR is updating their servers preparing for the patch. (im assuming 1.1)

Does anyone know if Steam will be updating the steam version, or will all users be getting the patch through the Witcher 2 launcher?

is that true?

cool :)

Steam should get the patch themselves with a little delay I guess.

Steam version will be updated through steam.

GoG and retail will be updated by launcher.

Glad I got the GoG version.

Does anyone know when their update "will take another hour" was posted?

About an hour ago.

im trying to figure that out, not sure what timezone they are in

my bet however is that they have given the patch to valve and valve is uploading the patch as well, that way when CDPR has its update server up and running, so does steam (ok, so its more just wishful thinking)

im just praying that many of these fixes are retroactive, just got into chapter 2 on hard.

Awesome for the patch to come out so soon. I'm desperately waiting for the Nvidia WQL driver though.

LOL!

Without that driver, I'm not even thinking about installing this game. I need that driver for fast 3D stereo!

I'm using the 270 drivers without any problems. 260 worked fine for me too.

I'm on the Nvidia 275.27 beta driver. No crashes yet and running great!

Anyway looking for the patch notes, am curious what they have fixed. Hopefully I can finally download and install Troll trouble :)

Aaaaah, when will the patch be available? It's kinda been more than one hour now.

enemyofportal
05-23-2011, 02:29 PM
but don't expect too much on this. just like other games' patches, it wont' improve or fix dramatically. I don't expect that the patch will fix optimization problem which makes fps lower. if you have decent PC, it should be no problem to set more than medium graphic setting. it's a huge downside for this game.

soundcreepy

im just hoping for it to fix the control bugs, on hard its really killing me

My game finds a connection to the server but I can't see the patch. What's going on?

DarkOneBR

Sry about the earlier post, it's the bonus content that's getting downloaded.
Patch isn't out yet... :(

05-23-2011, 02:51 PM
I'm thinking we won't get the patch through the Launcher like the other versions because their servers are up but I'm not getting any patch but others on thewitcher website are reporting they are getting it. Can any one who works for Steam please update us?

I have the retail version but it didn't download anything now when I connected to the servers through the launcher. :/

im surprised some of you can even connect, been getting connection error all day.

marsson
05-23-2011, 03:00 PM
Yeah it says "Connection error, try again later" when the launcher starts. But if I wait for 5-10 seconds it connects.

not for me :(, could have it open all day, no change, ah well, have the steam copy anyways, so launcher most likely won't help in the first place

EDIT: I'm having trouble connecting as well.

I was at the beach and was able to connect just fine in the launcher (the internet sucked so bad the game download only finished last night after 5 days of downloading). I booted up the game to find it did not include the polish voice overs so I decided to wait to play until I got home to some decent internets and could download the extra content from the launcher. I came home today booted up my computer and the launcher wont connect at all. Been trying for the last 4 hours and it has not connected once. Has anyone figured out if its a port issue? I don't have windows firewall enabled and could connect just fine at the beach? I thought the servers might be down but I see people saying they are connected so i'm not so sure anymore?

marsson
05-23-2011, 03:18 PM
@BeefMcHuge - I had some trouble connecting earlier as well. But it seemed as if it were related to CDP having their site down due to the upcoming update. You're probably just having the same problems that other is having just because of this. Give it some time and see if it resolves itself.

Thanks for the quick reply!

UPDATE: As I typed this reply the launcher connected and it started downloading the voice overs! Must have been the servers were down! Can't wait to start playing!

Well everyone hopes that it'll be released today. But if it doesn't it'll probably be released tomorrow.

It's probably going to be tomorrow at this point. Just hope they gave the patch to Valve already so that they will upload it. Would suck to not get the patch same time as everyone else when I need it to make Troll Trouble download.

danvis

I'm pretty sure Valve got it this time the same as the others. Sure - CDProjekt wanted to give a heads-up to GoG when it comes to the game itself, but once the game has already been bought, I don't see a reason not to let everyone update on the same time. That wouldn't be business, it would be mean.

Anyhow, I'm still desperately waiting for the CF patch from AMD. I'm playing on mid level with just 1 graphic card (turning on both actually make things worse) so I'm pretty sure I could run the game on high settings once the CAP is out. Really pisses me off that it takes them so long to patch the game for CF.

XKL1
05-24-2011, 01:56 AM
you are 100% right, but still...only a few, maybe less than 1% owns a CR system!

When it runs flawless at 99% of the systems, this would be good so far ;)

danvis
05-24-2011, 02:03 AM
Mmm I'm not sure you right about those numbers. More and more people reserve to CF or SLI these days as the old graphic cards alone simply aren't enough. Take the 6850 i.e - it's considered quite a weak card, no where near the 5850/5870 or the 6950/6970 - however, combine 2 of these in a CF formation, and in the price a bit more expensive than a single 6970, you get a powerhouse that can beat almost every combination, according to latest benchmarks.

XKL1
05-24-2011, 02:22 AM
When it runs properly and then you still get those micro-errors with dual gpu as far as I know!

You must not forget that by far the most pc gamers do not own a strong PC.

In the USA for example, the console is the gaming station, the pc...naaah not so much.

Only in some european countries the people own in general a stronger PC.

And from these people by far the most one a single GPU system!

So I believe this 1% is a good guess.

I just hope that they somehow managed to squeeze in a little bit of optimization in the patch :) Just waiting for it to be released!

I don't think they've even posted the patch notes yet, or am I mistaken?

Would be a bit silly if the patch only fixes one or two minor things yet people wait with such high hopes for it.

XKL1
05-24-2011, 05:41 AM
actually they have posted some of the patch notes on thewitcher.com

so some stuff like the inverted mouse, DLC problems and so on.

Really jaratees me off that it takes them so long to patch the game for CF.

Interestingly i'm running a 6870 CF setup and am able to run the game maxed out @ 1920x1080 (sans ubersampling) without any issues at all, and can verify that both my cards are working during gameplay. The only issue i've had is the odd slowdown here and there, but that only seems to happen during cutscenes.

I wont be buying their games at launch anymore. Pretty half assed operation really. Gave AMD an outdated version from what I here which is why it blows ♥♥♥ on AMD cards an we have to wait for hotfix. Their registration/DLC servers are down most of the time. Which I kind of expected from the start I hate when they try to do it themselves they know they can't handle the traffic but don't give a ****. An now lord knows when the patch will arrive.

My 5850 runs at 30-70FPS (High settings, no Ubersampling, no SSAO). I consider that above average considering the quality of the graphics. Their support is actually a lot better than other recent games. Perhaps buy a console? :P

i dunno, im kind of split here.....i would love to see the patch soon so i can get back to playing, but i also don't want a half/buggy/doesn't do much patch so as long as the end product is great, ill live
